In church they talk about being the light unto the world. They also talk about how Jesus' is the light. What does the light really mean? How can we become a light?
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. (1 John 1:5, 6 NIV)
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7 NIV)
God's light represents what is good, pure, true, and holy. Darkness represents anything evil. To say God is the light means that he is good, pure, true, and holy; he alone cannot go into darkness because he is light. Just a darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, sin cannot exist in the presence of a holy God. To live in the light we must get rid of what is dark, sin cannot be in our lives if we want to walk in the light, like He is in the light.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. (John 1:9 NIV)
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12 NIV)
We will never become the light. Our job as follower's of Jesus Christ is to be reflectors. As Christ shines His light on us, we are to reflect the light to the world.
How do you reflect God's light?
